Ever have an experience that you thought was going to be one thing but turned out to be a whole world of other things?
I ventured out to a place called The Old Mill in Little Rock…my mind conjured up remembrances of mills I have seen over the years.
So my thoughts were on having a nice meandering stroll in and around the old mill.
What I found was a magical world of rustic work sculptors ( Trabajo Rustico )…they look like one thing but are entirely something else…
Meant to look like natural wooden structures, every thing is made from a secret mixture of concrete and miscellanea, the recipe for which, the sculptor (Dionicio Rodriguez), took to his grave…
A country Idyll, pocketed away in a bustling city… a treasure waiting to be discovered
Wow, how interesting. Such great adventures! So enjoying your travels. I can travel through you. Thank you Anne
Cool sculpture! I wonder how he did it. By the detail he captured, it kind of looks like lost wax casting on a grand scale. That’s usually done with metals though. I don’t know if it’s even possible with cement/concrete. It would be incredibly difficult and tedious, but artists are a strange lot! : )
Thanks for sharing. You never know what you’re going to find tucked away around the next corner, do you?
What an amazing place to visit. Why does my list of things to see always get longer?
